This book is adorable. If your child has a name beginning with A he or she will love this book. It has many A words and good illustrations. You don't have to wait until the child can read to buy this book.

Great books, always checked out in library

These are really great books. The fact that each book is similar in story, but with different letters really helps those learning to read. My 2 1/2 year old knows that "little ? has a box" and that "I will fill my box." She's just remembering and copying right now, but eventually I know she will recognize those words. I was a children's librarian and we could never keep these books in the library, they were always checked out. I'm writing this review right now because I just found the WHOLE set for only $6.00 at a thrift shop. I couldn't believe it, I just snapped them up so fast and I will definitely keep them for her children, just as the other reviewer is.

COMPLETE SET of MY BOOKS, First Steps to reading by Moncure

I have the entire set up for sale however there isn't a particular spot to list them so I have listed them under the "A" book noting the price for the complete set which I paid close to $400 for and asking less than halg for the complete set. this is an exceleltn resourse for your children and for a daycare or school with reading programs. My daugther was reading in the 1st grade and by 2nd she was a regular reader as she is now. I kow you will find these books beneficila for all needs in your home, school or daycare.

Wonderful Series

We purchased this series to help my oldest learn to read. His Kindergarten teacher had told us he would never learn to read. The books are simply written and maintain the same plot line through all the books. The main character is always "Little (letter of the book." Each character has a box and decides to fill it with items that start with that letter. My oldest (now 8) reads on the 6th grade level with full comprehension. These books have done wonders in our house. I'm sorry to find that this series is now so hard to come by. I will definately hold on to these for my other children and then for their children.

"a" is for "alligator"

My 20 month old absolutely loves this book. She requests it to be read to her over and over and has already memorized its contents. She is especially fond of the alligator, correctly pronouncing its name on each page... and her countenance changes as "Little a" works through his adventure. The pictures are simple and pleasing, the words are big and bold, and the storyline is very interesting to youngsters. My daughter will now finish the sentences for me, and point to all the "a" words on the pages, correctly identifying each with its proper name. Can't wait to read the rest of the alphabet! Kudos to Moncure for capturing a 20 mo. old attention!
